Hulk Hogan has been left "devastated" by the publication of his sex tape.
The 59-year-old wrestler - who confirmed that the woman in the intimate footage is Heather Clem, the wife of his friend Bubba the Love Sponge - claimed he had no idea he was being filmed and is determined to find out who is responsible for leaking the footage.
He said on The Today Show: "It was a bad choice and a very low point. I was with some friends and made a wrong choice. It has devastated me, I have never been this hurt.
"I'm going full blown to try and figure out who would do this to me.
"It's appalling. It's flipped my life totally upside down."
Hulk - whose real name is Terry Bollea - is particularly upset because the attention has left his wife Jennifer McDaniel "rattled".
He added: "My new wife Jennifer is rattled, she is not used to being part of the media. It's something devastating to me, I've never been through anything on this level."
The wrestler - who was going through a split from then-wife Linda when the film was shot - can't understand why anyone would tape and leak the footage.He questioned: "What's the motivation?"
